Blurb: This was his worst plan ever. Trent Sanchez was only going out for a coffee, just an afternoon break from all the responsibilities, and somehow he ended up a hundred miles away!

It was a mistake, a foolish act. He’d had a fantasy plan, not a real one, but here he was on the run with Billy, a plucky human who had nifty little concoctions that saved them from Renegades.

He wasn’t sure anyone could forgive him or would understand. He had a job to do, one that saved thousands of lives. But when innocents died and he found he couldn’t save everyone no matter how hard he tried, Tre faltered. Even his gift wasn’t working properly anymore and his beloved bear, Tredd Croggen, who he’d fallen for the moment they met, was gruff and annoyed with him. His head hurt and his thoughts were jumbled. Tre was lost, but he was fighting to get back what they’d had.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Tre gets overwhelmed with everything and decides to off for a while without telling anyone including his mate Tredd.

Things are not as smooth as he would like when he meets Billy being mugged. The two then set off for an adventure. Tredd eventually catches up with them and they discuss the stress Tre’s been under.

I liked that Tre and Tredd talked eventually. Tre was under way too much stress and suffering for it. I felt he had no life to do what he wanted. Especially when everyone seemed to keep him under lock and key twenty four seven. Billy was sweet yet knew how to hold his own in a fight for a human.

Good read.

Review: Each book in the Honey Haven collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Gus has his heart set on Denver and tries to show it. The problem is Denver pretty much ignores everyone and stays in his room. He knew something was wrong with Denver, but it wasn’t till he found out that not only was Denver a shifter but a bit about his past. When two online friends show up for a ghost hunt, Gus’s isn’t to sure about them. He did invite them but there was something off about them.

These stories crack me up especially when Gus is always speaking about ghosts. Wait for the surprise, it is going to be a scorcher. However these stories don’t flow as well as they should and there is always something missing from them. This one was no different but I can’t put my finger on what it is. Other than that small issue, this story is quite different and very quirky. I got a kick out of them. Although I must admit that the ghosts being thrown in at the last minute was a bit weird. I mean two years and no one has seen them till now just doesn’t flow with me.

I had a blast reading it and look forward to seeing more from this author. I will admit she is a favorite of mine.

Derrick had thought his brother’s problems were mental, but then he proved that it was more than that. It had led them straight into the paranormal world and monsters. He had been captured along with a vampire, tortured. It almost got him killed. Now he tried to stay away from that type of life, but his mind kept reminding him of Raphael.

Raphael has found his mate and decided to leave him alone. He had not wanted a mate but he wanted Derrick. He watched him to keep him safe, but one is never safe from the past.

This story has a dark tone to it that I didn’t care for. It is a very unique story that is very entertaining. The only thing is that even though it is a short story it feels like it comes off longer. You get excitement, danger, a new world and some sweet sexy times in this book and quite a bit more.

I will admit that even though I did like it, it is not one of those stories that will get read more than once.

He knew it wasn’t right, he knew there was something out there better for him, but he never had the chance to escape, or to know a proper life.

When Orin pulls Milo out of the vampire farm, he can barely let himself hope for something with the other man. One kiss is all it takes to let Milo know this is the real deal.

And then Orin abandoned him.

Heartbroken, Milo never thought he would see him again, so when Orin returns, broken and on the brink of death, Milo will do what needs to be done to return the favor to his mate, and get his answers.

Review: I loved this story of Orin trying to do what is right and Milo demanding to stay by his side when Glendon banishes him from the pack for what he did to Jake. Milo was a sweet, timid fox shifter saved from the vampire blood farm by Orin.

He’s also Orin’s mate. Along with the struggle still between Fergus and Parker and the two disappearing after vampires attack while they are out made for an interesting story.

Review: Dara is closing ranks on Amos and his mates as he takes out those he sees as weak and unfit. He recruits others for his nefarious plans. I really enjoyed the history about who Bairr and his crew were but I was disappointed that their telling of why they had a connection to the Trawley’s and Collier’s was cut short.

Quite a few battles take place as a lot happens to different members of Hartlands pack as a result of rescuing and or protecting others. Those who were once enemies become allies when they are attacked and hurt. I love the way the series is going so far. The tense situations, action, sarcastic comments, and love all combine to make for a fantastic addition.

I am looking forward to reading more and seeing what happens next in this exciting series.

Review: Each book in the Operation collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall sory arc and cross over characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I have ready pretty much every book this author has came out with and am always amazed at her gift at giving an amazing story. This particular series is very unique and always keeps one on their toes. The characters are a blast to read about and damn if they are not feisty. My attention was caught from the first line and kept all the way to the end. It is the perfect length for me and I get a kick out of the guys. Sasha is about to meet his match.

Dante and his cousins had found a scroll that explained their crazy birthmark. It also told of a story full of hate and deceit from the bear shifter world. Believing in the story, the bears would kill all who had the mark. Dante is a feisty and argumentative young man who is a prima donna of drama. He has just found his mate, and if that man gives him one more order he was going to dye his eyebrows pink.

Sasha had always believed in the story so imagine his surprise when he finds out the truth. He has also found his mate, and damn if that man is not giving him hell. To bad many others believe the old ways, and keeping his mate safe is on the front line. Of course when his mate finds out he is pregnant with twins, he might want to run for cover.

I don’t really care for the way the bears attitude causes havoc but it sure is a blast to see Dante in a fit. I sure hope Charlie gets his story, I think that will be the one that will have me in tears. This story was a blast to read and I can’t wait to read the next book.

Review: Each Book in the Brac Village collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Hiding out at the Sheriff’s house as the cute and loveable German Shepard was going so good for him. However the fact that he was a shifter and hiding from a demon might stand in the way. Max accidentally shifts in front of his mate and has a lot of back tracking to do with not only his mate but the sheriff.

Dillion was past annoyed. He always pet and scratched the sheriff’s dog not knowing that he was a shifter nor his mate. Hell he always threatened to steal him but now the mutt was his permanently. To bad his mate was more into deception then anything. That is until he finds out why.

I actually liked this quite a bit and enjoyed the characters. The story moved at an even pace and was full of action and excitement, not to mention some hot sexy times. I was glad to see Panahasi once more as well as his warriors. I also spent time laughing my ass off with most of it. I always liked a good story with humor in it, and this author gives that in spades.

Seth had been living on the streets trying to survive. That is until he was taken by vampires and turned into a blood slave. Then to be offered a chance at freedom, but it comes with a price. He was to kill another.

Theron figured it out and decided to help his mate out. There was the problem of someone trying to kill him and that there was a big threat inside their coven. They had a traitor to find.

I actually liked this one a bit more than the first two. It still has a dark tone to it and a lot of pain inside, but it also has a second chance and forgiveness. I found that my attention was actually kept with this story till the end. I will admit that for such a short story it does come off like a full size novel. This author sure does know how to give details in such a short read. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought and can’t wait to see what the next story has going on. I will also admit that this is not one of those types that will be read more than once.

Review: Each book in the Brac Village. collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is a cut off from Brac Pack and I would suggest starting with that series first. It is also connected with several other series as well.

Francis owed Haven so he heads over to cut some guys hair and damn if the man was walking sin. To bad he was trying to get that asshat of an ex out of his head, the damn man dumped him the night before. Then the sexy as sin shows up at his house shot up, well he was in for a big surprise. Cal has been raised to run the business his grandfather had. To bad for the old fart, he had no interest running weapons. He just wanted to run the normal, every day, legal side of the business. When his normal hair stylist couldn’t make it, he couldn’t believe it when his mate walks in instead. He had no clue how to keep them both safe and just wait for the surprise to show up.

It pretty much followed a direct path as the other stories in this series had. Humor, ok lets face it they are funny as hell, danger, excitement, action packed and not to mention some hot sexy times are all rolled into this story. The characters are quite quirky and will definitely have your head in the clouds. The down side is it felt a little rushed to me. It was very entertaining as one would expect in Lynn Hagen’s books.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it will be read many times over. I can’t wait to see what the next book has going on.

Stalker met his mate around three years ago but let him go. That did not mean he forgot . In fact he basically stalked his mate and kept watch. Jojo had been forced to get married. He wanted to go with Stalker but there was his child on the way. When Myra died in child birth, he just couldn’t make a move. However when his father made another threat, his ass was out. Stalker is going to be a dad.

It is so hard to give a bit of description without giving the story away. Stormy Glenn has always been one of my favorite authors to read. This is probably one of my top series that I can guarantee will always be read many times over. FYI, Bob is still my favorite character. The story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I do wish there was a bit more action and danger to it, but it was still perfect for me. The characters are quite charming and lets just say their reaction to who the alpha is, is always a laugh. When I read these stories it almost makes me go out an buy a cat, I did say almost. Taking a cat for a walk at the park is always funny as hell.

I can honestly say that this story will be read many times over and I hope that it will always be that way. I had a blast reading this and damn the guys are just sexy. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and would recommend reading the whole series.

Review: Each book in the Honey Haven collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Henry is a sweet bunny shifter whose life is about to be turned nutty. His older brother, who I might add is an ass, is a controlling, egotistical and selfish man is up to know good. He wants to rub it into people’s faces that he has more money than god. He has also sold his brother. Then they show up at a hotel ran by the sexiest of men. One has caught the little cuties eye and he might just loose his virgin status.

Morgan is a brother who has to keep control over certain things. The hotel is finally doing good but his heart is still torn. His little brother is still in a feral state and hardly ever comes out of his room. That is until it is night and he just runs around the hotel in bear form. Then in walks a cutie and his heart might just be his. However Henry’s brother is another matter. Trouble always seems to show up and Morgan is going to protect his mate.

These stories are sweet and funny as hell but it is also missing something. They come off rushed and a bit jumbled. The main thing I find wrong is the way the guys act. They are bear shifters but you couldn’t tell it. For one they can’t scent others as well they don’t know their mates till after sex. They don’t shift unless they are showing their mates and that is just comes off weird. Other than those issues the story is quite enjoyable and can keep you entertained for awhile.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to see what the next book has going with it. I will say that Gus is still my favorite and I hope his story is coming up. Although even with him there were questions that were not answered.

Review: Each book in the Honey Haven collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Shane has a reputation of being a player but truthfully he is just a flirt. His brothers just don’t give him an inch. He however does go with the flow and slows down with it. That is until the new sexy handyman walks in the door. However it would seem Kieran has a few secrets himself. Shane is a bear shifter where as Kieran is a vampire. Two mates that just seem to be perfect for each other.

There is a few issues with the story that are sticking out to me. One of them is there were a few words missing in some of the sentences but it was still easy to follow. Also the story felt rushed and a bit choppy to me. I think the main question I had is that bear shifters have an amazing nose and could scent a mile away. However these guys don’t seem to be able to do that. For one they should have known that Kieran was a vampire but they don’t. Also what is Gus, the questions I have.

Other than that the story was pretty amazing. I got a kick out of Gus as always. The story had a serious tone to it but there was so much humor in it that it just made the story stand out. I love that about these stories. The characters were a big hit as well as the story.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on it. I can guarantee that it will be read many times over.

Haus has an angel on his shoulders and is glad for it. Kevin seems to call him and get him out of danger each time. The only problem is he has no clue who the hell the guy is or how he is doing it. The guy is even better than Charlie and that is saying something.

Kevin is a damn good soldier but now he worked for Homeland Security looking for terrorist. Give the man a computer and he can find anyone and everyone. A few years ago Haus saved his life and he has decided to pay him back in fold. Or that was the way it started at first, now the man had his attention in different ways. When Kevin is kidnapped it is up to Haus and his guys to help him out. Maybe it was time to meet.

This has always been one of my favorite series out there. I always look forward to them coming out. The characters are always fascinating and lets face it, men with guns are a total turn on. Their cases or problems that seem to come at them are so well thought out that it feels like you are right there with them. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I can guarantee that this book will be read many times over.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I would definitely recommend it and the previous books.

Review: Each Book in the Brac Village collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Mordechai talks Manny into taking in a roommate but he has a few issues with that. He likes his solitude and peace. He also likes his home clean and that was not what he got in the morning. It seems his roommate was just trying to fix something to eat and fell a sleep. It was a good thing his new roommate turned out to be his mate otherwise he would have sent his ass packing.

Nick’s parents were killed, his little brother was hooked up with a sexy man and his uncle was a drunk. He remembered when the man was a blessing but something happened and now all he did was drink. The aunt seemed to be of no help to them either. Now he was basically pawned off on another. No clue that they are mates until his little brother mentions it leaves him a bit off. However when someone breaks in and almost kills him, he is going to be glad for that mate.

I tried to figure out why the killer’s focus changed and what Mattias was up to however never really figured it out. The story felt really rushed and a few problems arise, however it is still a good story. I love how this author’s work always has humor mixed in with her stories. Makes for more of an interesting read. It did however still leave me with a few questions. I did like the idea of Nick using frying pan’s as weapons.

I do wish the author would tell us a bit more about the mothers problems and espionage. That sounds like it would be a great add in. Other than that it was a good read and I did enjoy it.

Review: After escaping the hell he was in Miguel is determined to bring down Sanchez and his cartel. Venom is a deadly drug that affects shifters and makes them fight. After years of being experimented on Miguel has finally had enough. With the help of Keane, Reece, Igor, Henry and Curtis he does just that.

Along the way there is danger and not everyone makes it out unscathed. Curtis pursues Miguel with the intensity of a predator and soon catches his sweet mate all the while determined to keep him safe from those that hurt him.

I loved everything about this story. The Warrior’s get help from a surprising source who has people undercover in the drug cartel. The baddies all get whats coming to them in the end.

Fantastic read and addition to the series.
